I have a Military neck , Neck Pain and Cannot Sleep.... HELP !

Posted by N Gil on

Q: I have a military neck and have been having so much pain I can't sleep. I am 5'5", 124 lbs and have a small frame. The distance from my neck to my shoulder is a little less than 4". Would you please recommend a pillow for me? Thank you. - Cassie

A: Hi Cassie, thank you for your question.

A military neck is used to describe a neck that does not have the normal  "C" curve in it. Symptoms associated with a military neck can include:

  • neck pain
  • neck ache
  • stiffness
  • decreased range of motion
  • headaches
  • pain in the neck
  • pain in the fingers and toes
  • coordination issues
  • weakness in muscles

In more extreme cases, spine deformity, paralysis, bladder and bowel control issues can also result.

The best recommendation would be an arc4life traction pillow in the medium size (24x17, most popular size ordered)  for you. Doing some form of neck traction will also help you get the curve back in your neck. You can easily do neck traction at home for 20-25 minutes to begin making changes in the spinal curve. It does take time, and make sure you are cleared to do neck traction.
